London Fashion Week – Bryce Aime

Backstage at Bryce Aime‘s
Asiarama show was minor chaos, with towering models getting their last minute
touch-ups before they were set to walk. The models were made up with yellow
blusher and hair was pulled up into high side ponytails with Asian inspired
headpieces perched on top.
The footwear for the show
was a little bizarre – Toms style plimsolls with cut out platforms underneath
that added inches of height to the models without a heel, inspired by Japanese geta
slippers. Model Hannah-Leigh told me
that despite their bizarre appearance, they’re a lot more comfortable than
heels, “but the first few steps can be tricky”. No stumbles were spotted,
though, as the models marched out in Bryce Aime’s SS11 collection.
The collection is clearly
inspired by the Far East, with intricate origami folds, neon sport-luxe pieces,
lots of red, and the use of two huge, feathered headpieces. Synthetic materials
are combined with details inspired by the ancient Orient to create pieces that
are timeless, yet fashion forward.
